2. Song for DAN TREACY
D Bm G Gm/BbHe spends his time, or maybe half of his time, or part of the time wandering
D/A Bm Em'round the creeks and cobble stones of hackney lanes
D Bm G Gm/Bbwith a tear in his eye, as the children walk by, he's thinking of a song
D/A Bm Em F#m Fmthen stops, to paint a picture of a frown, walking around
Em Cm Gm F#m Fm x2 And the fast guitar that's right after that part goes like this:

4. Flash Delirium Dm
FMild apprehension
Dm A/EBlank dreams of the coming fun
F Distort the odds of a turnaround
Dm AGut screams out next to none
BSo turn it on
ETune it in
AAnd stay inert
FYou say "I've got the backbone"
Dm AThe back way to escape the gun
F Climbing a tree with a missing limb
Dm AAnd not saving anyone
BAnd now it hurts
ETo stay at home and see
AFlash
The mirror ball's throwing mold
DmYou can't get a grip if there's nothing to hold
BSee the flash catch a white lily laugh and wilt
ESo if you must smash a glass first fill it to the hilt
FPlants
As far as I know are still,
C A Still bending toward the light
FAnd if we dance
Until the heart explodes
Dm AIt'll make this place ignite
F G And even if this hall collapses
C Am F I can stand by my pillar of hope it's just
Dm AA case of Flash Delirium
FHere's a growing culture
Deep inside a corpse
DmAges stuck together
ATaking it to the source
FTimeless desperation
CPictures on a screen scream
Dm A "hey people, what does it mean?"
B E A
F FmComfort keeps us nice
C ASo quick to donate everything
B EDie wolken drifting blinding smiles circling
F Fm CAnd time's tingling spines
A BAttaching hands to floor
E The rosy-tinted
AFlash
The hot dog's getting cold
DmAnd you'll never be as good as the Rolling Stones
BWatch the birds in the airport gathering dirt
ECrowd the clean magazine chick lifting up her skirt
F(hold) Why close one eye and try to
C Am Pledge allegiance to the sun
F Dm A When plastic ghosts start terrorizing everyone
F G Geometric troops aligning
C C/B Am Carried up to the burial mounds
F My earthbound heart is heavy
C Am Your heartbeat keeps things light
F Dm A With the violence forever threatening the night
F GAnd even if this hall collapses
C Am B I can stand by my pillar of hope and trust
EThat our heads won't bust
F G#Six six, five five red battleships
C/GForty earthlike planets
AThree holes two tits
B/F#One fork in it's side
EZero tears in their eyes
(double time)
FSue the spiders
Sink the Welsh
G#Stab your facebook
Sell sell sell
C/GUndercooked
Overdone
AMass adulation not so funny
B/F#Poisoned honey
Pseudo science
ESilly money
AYou're my honey
5. I Found A Whistle
C Am F AmHey I found a whistle that hangs like a charm
C Am F G And when my noose is tied I could blow it and fall down into your
Em D Em B7Arms. fifteen centuries of dissolution and grief
C G Fto return a yellow trickster and a thief
(Repeat for all verses) Ending
C G F CThis time I found a whistle that works every time
C G F E7Yeah I found a whistle that works, hangs like a charm
C G F CI found a whistle that works every time
C G F E7Yeah I found a whistle that works, closes my eye every-
F G Ctime. A whistle, I forgot it, I forgot it this time

Gm C Dm There's no reason there's no secret to decode
Gm C Dm G if you can't save it, leave it dying on the road
Gm C Dm C wide open arms can feel so cold, so cold
Feel so cold Em Gb D Dbm Bm E
A Balance the books, the ledges, the loons
Gbm the disappointed look on the faces
E that squint at the moon
Dbm Bm I've seen it with shadows enhanced
Dbm D and then vote to decide who'll advance
A Silver jet plane, making a turn
Gbm E exciting the brain that expects it to crash and then burn
Dbm Bm it's not the life lesson I'd've guessed
Dbm D if you're conscious you must be depressed
A Dbm or at least cynical
Em But someone might still eat the steaks
Gb even if they're tough
D Spending the day
Dbm chewing the fat
Bm E A floating away isn't rough but it's not enough
A Oh Marianne, pass me the joint
the sandpaper's tan
Gbm E go-getters are surfing the point
Dbm Bm and London's a scratch on the lens
Dbm D it's over before it begins
A Silk 'round her neck falls down to her shoulders
Gbm E the older I get, the more I suspect there's a trick
Dbm Bm but really there's no trick at all
Dbm D that doesn't result in a fall
A Dbm or a faltering
Em But something might spit out the bait
Gb even if it's real
D Rolling away
Dbm missing the spoke
Bm E A Dbm close to the ground like a wheel but it's not joke
D Holding the line
Dbm clutching the phone
Bm E A nobly wasting the night, but it isn't right
Gb it's not right
D Smelling for blood
Dbm praying for rain
Bm E A running away isn't rough, but it's not enough
Eb Gm Cm Fm Cm The low tide is telling me that it's over,
Bb Dm Gm to breathe in everything exposed
Eb Gm Cm Fm Cm and comes back to cover me with a breaker
Bb Dm Gm being here's always changing too
Cm Bb F Eb Dm G Am G Em Dm Bdim. Am G Em A Dm Bdim. Am G Em A Dm Bdim. Am G Em A Dm Bdim. Am G Em A
Dm Bdim. Am G Em A The empty sky surrounds me but I can't see at all
Dm Bdim. Am G Em A wide open arms can feel so cold
Dm Bdim. Am G Em A and you can sit beside me and tell me what it's worth
Dm Bdim. Am G Em A but I hope I die before I get sold
Dm Bdim. Am G Em A I hope I die before I get sold
Dm Bdim. Am G Em A I'd rather die before I get sold
Dm C Bdim. If you find the soul that you lost
E Am frozen in a starry void
Dm C G Take it within and hope the sight of blood
C can will signs of life to return
Dm C Bdim. Back to the way that it was
E Am long before it made a noise
Dm C G To keep on quietly reminding you
Cmaj7 what's never created or destroyed
Fmaj7 x8, Cmaj7 x8, Fmaj7 x8
Am C Wake as the swell peaks
Am C the close-outs drowning the birds with roars
Bbm Cm and howls scare the new unkindness
Bbm Cm Amaj7 that picks and laughs at the carrion scene
Am C Forces you see breathe
Am C can always go into hiding
Bbm Cm and wait 'til it passes over
Bbm Cm or stay far gone for all eternity

The verse is just a simple chord progression: *Note: The chords are pretty much above the exact syllables of each lyric. Verse 1:
G F#/G Em D Dead in the water
C B/C AmIt's not a paid vacation
G F#/G Em D C The sons and daughters of city officials
B/C AmAttend demonstrations
G F#/G Em D It's hardly a sink or swim
C B/C AmWhen all is well if the ticket sells
Break 1: G F#/G Em D C B/C Am Am Verse 2:
G F#/G Em D Out with a wimper
C B/C AmIt's not a blaze of glory
G F#/G Em You look down from your temple
D C B/C AmAs people endeavor to make it a story
G F#/G Em D And chisel a marble word
C B/C AmBut all is lost if it's never heard
Break 2: G C7 G G7 Chorus:
CBut I've got someone to make reports
DThat tell me how my money's spent
CTo book my stays and draw my blinds
DSo I can't see what's really there
DAnd all I need's a great big congratulations
G F#/G Em D C B/C Am Am Just repeat for the rest of the song: Verse 3: I'll keep your dreams You pay attention for me As strange as it seems I'd rather dissolve than have you ignore me The ground may be moving fast But I tied my boots to a broken mast Break 1 Verse 4: The difference is clear You throw it in your cauldron Rust and veneer, dusk and dawn Steinways and Baldwins You start with a simple stock of all the waste And salt to taste Break 2 Chorus 2: But damn my luck and damn these friends That keep on combing back their smiles I save my grace with half-assed guilt And lay down the quilt upon the lawn Spread my arms and soak up congratulations
